GoFan, the leading digital ticketing solution for high school events, has announced an executive-level promotion and the addition of a key operating executive. The company has promoted Stuart Granger to Chief Operating Officer and added David Greiff as Chief Revenue Officer.

GoFan has experienced incredible growth over the past 18 months as digital ticketing has been widely adopted throughout the country as the fastest, most convenient way to attend events. As the most trusted ticketing provider for thousands of high schools and millions of fans across the country, the company continues to expand and strengthen its leadership team to ensure near-term operating excellence and long-term strategic scalability.

“As we approach the fall of 2021, high schools will be at the forefront of their communities welcoming fans back to live events. GoFan is committed to continuing to deliver a first-class experience,” says BJ Pilling, GoFan’s CEO. “To continue executing against our growth plans, we are committed to adding top talent to the GoFan leadership team. Stuart and Daves’ background and capabilities exemplify this strategy.”

While high schools in 2020 adopted capacity limits and other pandemic safety measures, most are preparing for full attendance at sport events and other school activities in the fall. GoFan expects its customer base and organization to continue on a strong growth trajectory.
